Ex-combatants of the Malaya communists party and the former political detainees of Malaya and later Malaysia came together on Sunday 2 December for a film screening. This is a friendship association formed by themselves to share their traumas that they had all suffered unjustly. The film ‘ Five tigers’ brought back survival memories for many of them and in some way helps to heal many of their indelible scars. The film will continue to travel, watch out for it showing near you.


Fences made by the residents in a poor district in old Kuala Lumpur. Photos by Victor Chin 2021

Fences. Walking into an old wooden neighborhood in the heart of Kuala Lumpur you will find fences made up of all sorts of materials. This is a poor community and they can only use recycled parts that they had collected and they put together freely. The designs, constructions and materials used are lively and creative. This is everyday living and unconscious artistic expression at its best. Enjoy the fences.
